as I suspected,
it's overwhelmingly olive-green,
the color of the Burmese tatmadaw
i might be prejudiced to think that way.
after all, aren't all orchid stems and leaves green?
what do those twisted
petals have to say?
what do other orchids have to say?
this honors the ungainly bald general
but insults the whole of
you don't deserve it.
i grieve for you
dendrobium thein sein.
